Hugh Jackman, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'While training for the film 'Real Steel,' the producers asked Hugh Jackman if he'd be okay with having Sugar Ray Leonard come in and help him train up a bit so he can be more convincing as a former boxer. What kind of question was that, Jackman wondered on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central)?

Of course, he'd want to live that experience. And he said that Leonard is the real deal. And apparently, at 55 years old, Sugar Ray Leonard still packs a pretty mean punch. Especially when it's coming for your stomach and you're not ready.

According to Jackman, it happened when a guy turned on the behind-the-scenes camera. "He was just like out of the corner of his eye: the red light," Jackman said. And then, "Bang!"
